I'm Wearing Favorites + Damn Knee

It's Tuesday and I am in for a fun filled day of running around so today was a jeans and sneakers kinda day. If you don't know, I have a really bad knee which my doc says now has zero cartilage and is basically bone on bone and just for kicks my knee decided it also wanted a case of arthritis under the knee cap..how nice! LOL

The odd thing is that you would think because of my bad knee that I would need to wear flat shoes often but it is actually the other way around for me. When I wear heels I think my body weight shifts and I can go all day without a single bit of pain from my knee but if I wear flats for more than a day my knee starts to hurt so bad, isn't that strange? LOL any excuse to justify my wearing 6" heels daily BWHAHAHAHAH

Today I just couldn't imagine running around in heels so I will use up my "one day flat shoe allowance" 

 Wearing Favorites!
I love my GAP T-shirt because it says London on it and London is one of my favorite cities ever! I always have such an amazing time when I am there and I can't wait to get back! My jeans are from Express which I am sure you have seen me wear several times, they are so COMFY and have just enough distress and slouchiness for me. I buy jeans at different places but I think these are in my top ten.
Now let's talk about my Jacket, Can I just tell you that I bought this Jacket at GAP about 5 years ago and I LOVE IT! I wish they would release it again in different colors so I buy more, lol and of course I am carrying my latest Michael Kors purchase (bought it last month), this bag is so the right size and it it is quickly becoming a fav of mine to carry! Im wearing my Sketchers plain white sneaks and my Favorite Tory Burch Sunnies, I love how dark they are and kinda bad ass, lol

  4. Simple and cute!!

    I have bad knees too as well as chronic lower back pain, so me wearing heels all the time is hard, but I do try rock them even when I probably shouldn't. LOL I like them high too 4 inches and up. But I do like my flats, I am either wearing sky high heels or low to the ground flats!!

  6. Mimi I like the laid back comfy run around town outfit. Oops that's a mouth full. Lol Anyway, chic and cute as always. When I read the part about your knee, I said to myself, "me too." But it's both knees for me.

  14. Hi i amfrom new Zealand. My question to you is how do you fit your clothes that you sew for yourself . Do you use a clothes dumbly or what. I have been sewing since I was little now I have 3 teenage kids. So a lot of sewing has happened but I can't get the exact fit for me that I can do for others
